I don't know where or by whom this photo was taken. It was emailed to me by a friend who also received it from a friend. All of this in an effort to identify this bird. Attached File  big bird.jpg   253.56K   75 downloads

Welcome to Whatbird!!! Dragonteacher!

agree with Beared Vulture!

Cowboy Bean is coming this way!

He's sharp as needle and bright as a dollar,

Wear No. 3 shoe and a 16 collar.

He's full of vim and he's full of vigor,

fast on the draw, and quick on the trigger.

So all you bandits and thieves take warning

Or you'll be in a hospital bed by morning!

And the doc'll give you kind of a shake,

And he'll hear the rattle that the bullets make,

And he'll shake his head and he'll say "oh my"

I can't cure this and I ain't gunna try!


For Two-Gun-Freddy has plugged this guy!
